    Fowler, Garcia, Westwood can take Major step


    RICKIE Fowler, Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood must be wondering if it will be their turn to leave the list of "best yet to win a major" at this week's

    PGA Championship

    in New Jersey.

    It has been the year of the breakthrough in major golf with England's

    Danny Willett at the Masters, American

    Dustin Johnson at the

    US Open and Sweden's Henrik Stenson at the British Open all registering their maiden majors.

    The world rankings

    offer two prime candidates for the PGA title to make it

    a 2016 majors sweep for first-time winners in seventh-ranked Fowler

    and Garcia, the No. 10.

    Another notable player who has come close to lifting a major trophy is 43-year-old Englishman Westwood.

    Five of the last seven winners of the PGA were first-time major champions, the latest being world number one Jason Day.
